@wanderingbrunette:  Hello. I noticed you are relatively new to the Bee. Welcome! Just a word of caution: be careful when using the term “fake”. Instead, try “stand-in” or “non diamond”.

@wanderingbrunette:  ditto what @shortie1848:  said.  Welcome to the bee and the term ‘fake’ doesn’t always get taken well.  ‘Stand in’ is a much more accepted term around here (lots of bees have non-diamond engagement rings). 

I would check out the costume jewellery stores, a lot of them have okay looking rings, just coat the metal in clear polish to keep the finish (and keep your finger from turning green).  I would also check out consignement or antique shops.

Try Amazon.

They have Claire’s in Canada, you may want to try that.

Sears has a line of CZ rings which are pretty nice and around $30

Ouch… not a nice way to start the day or your posting history on WBee IMO

Like it or not you are new here…

And YOUR USE of the word “fake” as is DOES HURT others.

Doesn’t matter that you don’t see it that way

Other Bees explained it to you nicely… sadly you didn’t want to listen.

You want a “Stand In” Ring… for when your ERing is not available / inconvenient.  Period.

You have been given some good ideas on where to look.

@wanderingbrunette:  You can check out Berricle http://www.berricle.com/ they currently have 35% off.  I’m in Ontario and ordered from there for a couple different rings (a band and CZ for when I’m doing things I don’t want to wear my real engagement ring for) the quality is amazing and honestly every single person thought it was real.  6 months later and neither have tarnished at all, I think shipping to Canada is $9.99

@wanderingbrunette:  I like you. I’ve been here for over a year, and people do annoyingly get their knickers in a twist over the word “fake”. Everyone knows exactly what people mean when they use the word “fake”, and generally it is not used at all to upset people, yet they choose to be upset.

@wanderingbrunette:  
Try: Paris Jewellers at WEM, Millwoods or Bonnie Doon. Watch for their Silly Sales. (My engagement ring is from Paris)

Sears

Even Winners. (I found a nice costume ring from there)

@wanderingbrunette:  Just be careful if you get one at Claires, they sell a lot of plated base metal, so it may turn your finger green. There is also Metalsmiths, I think they are usually overpriced for what you get, but they sometimes have sales that may make it worth it.
